is the timetable here? we know president obama is going to be headed to the g20 summit in st. petersburg and cameron as well involved in those discussions. is there a definitive timetable where they see a window to strike or could this be put off for weeks perhaps? >> there is no definitive timetable, but what we do know is that for many lawmakers it is dependent on what the u.n. inspectors say and they will be leaving on saturday. does that mean we're going to have a definitive answer on saturday? really it is up to the u.n. nop orz, what evidence they gathered and when they're ready to present that evidence. that's what it really hinges on. at least in terms of britain's involvement. >> thank you so much. richard, interestingly enough, it was the former prime minister tony blair who got a lot of flack as you know for supporting the iraq war and president bush being called bush's poodle and i imagine there is some public opinion that fits into all of this as well. how does he come out on top of all of this? >> time and again there was huge discussion, listening to toads to the debate in
. a republican senator has a message for president obama. it's time to get tough with russia. the strained relations have taken a turn for the worst. john mccain thinks president obama is under estimating russian president clad mirrvlad. he said he compared him to a board kid in school. >> the president comparing him to a kid in the back of the classroom is very indicative of the president's lack of appreciation of who vladmir putin is. he's an old kgb colonel that has no illusion about our relationship. does not care about the relationship with the united states and continues to oppress his people and the media and act in an unhelpful fashion. >> president obama cancelled a one-on-one meeting with putin but mccain says that's not enough. by granting asylum to edward snowden he's poked his if you think finger in obama's guy. >> president obama says he opposes any boycott of the winter olympics because of russia's new law against gay propaganda. the law has exposed a deep divide over day rights in russia. >> olympic officials says russia has assured them the law won't apply to visitors but

there -- >> that was president obama just days ago assuring the american public that the gnanational security agency was not breeching the trust of its citizens. a new report may raise concerns. after combing through the documents leaked by edward snowden, the post reports that the nsa has broken privacy rules thousands of times each year since 2008. the postsays most of the incidents involve surveillance of americans and foreign intelligence targets on u.s. soil in ways that violate the program's rule. of those incidents the post reports most were unintended. an area code mix up caused the nsa to intercept a large number of calls from washington, d.c. instead of from egypt. the nsa response was quick. overnight the agency released a pointed statement. nsa's foreign intelligence a activities are audited. when nsa makes a mistake in carrying out its foreign intelligence mission, the agency reports the mission internally and to federal overserious and gets to the bottom of it. >> dan, with me not far from where president obama is vacations. can we expect to hear more from the president about anymore s

almost exactly one year after president obama warned that any such attack would trigger american intervention and he called the use of chemical weapons this red line. this morning senator john mccain told cnn the u.s. needs to hit syrian air fields and planes as well. >> it is obvious from the pictures when you see the dead bodies of children and women and others stacked up and the fact is it is already established that he has used it before, so as i said, it shouldn't surprise us when we use it again. it is horrific, and outrageous and the president a year ago said they would be -- if they crossed a red line there would be response. we know now of course that they have already used it. i am sure and confident that they are used it again, and that we use it again unless they are rained in and prevented from doing so. >> and you know, ivan, what is so difficult about this is fred was saying they cannot determine first of all who is doing it on either side and don't really understand what exactly happened yet. that is something the obama administration is trying to figure out. befo

to egypt to meet with leaders. they're making this trip at president obama's request. supporters have been camping out for weeks in cairo. you're looking at pictures there. the military backed interim government is threatening to clear the streets of morsi's supporters. morsi was removed from power just last month by the egyptian military and he was egypt's first democratly elected president. since he was toppled there's been fighting on the streets. egypt a critical u.s. ally in the middle east. >>> we are now following another big story. we're waiting official word about the fate of alex rodriguez. major league baseball has been quiet now but it's expected a suspension of the yankee's star. he's accused of taking performance enhancing drugs. an announcement could come any moment now. we're keeping a good eye on that. some are saying a-rod could be out until 2015. let's talk about how this could all unfold. you could have three different things happening today. he gets suspend, appeals, making his yankees debut for the season tonight. what do we think is going to happen? what do we think
